New Facemask rules – keep Chippy safe

The Government’s new rules – requiring customers to wear facemasks in all shops – came into force today 24 July. See gov.uk webpage. Please help keep everyone in Chipping Norton safe and follow the rules

Masks now needed for Chippy shops

In England, unless you have a valid exemption, you must wear a face covering by law in the following settings

  • public transport
  • indoor transport hubs (airports, rail and tram stations and terminals, maritime ports and terminals, bus and coach stations and terminals)
  • shops and supermarkets (places which are open to the public and that wholly or mainly offer goods or services for retail sale or hire)
  • indoor shopping centres
  • banks, building societies, and post offices (including credit unions, short-term loan providers, savings clubs and money service businesses)

You are expected to wear a face covering immediately before entering any of these settings and must keep it on until you leave.You are also strongly encouraged to wear a face covering in other enclosed public spaces where social distancing may be difficult and where you come into contact with people you do not normally meet.

Please wear a facemask for shopping

Face coverings are required to be worn in any shops, including food shops, inside takeaways and supermarkets, but are not required in hospitality settings, including restaurants with table service, bars, and pubs. Where a cafe/coffee shop does takeaways, masks can be removed while in the seating area for inside eating and drinking
